Labor Day Trivia

Classes / Events/ Holidays / Special Days

I love to find out fun and interesting "trivia" about holidays and pass it on. So, here is today's fun stuff .*

1.The first big Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882 by the Central Labor Union of New York.

2.Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a holiday in 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

3. Labor Day has come to be celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable for women to wear white (not so much now, but totally was when I was growing up).

4. NCAA teams usually play their first games the week before Labor Day, with the NFL traditionally playing their first game the Thursday following Labor Day.

Also, wanted to share pictures of the 2 cards we will be doing at my Christmas Card Classes this coming weekend. We have a great time creating handmade cards to send out to friends and family.

Due to a "technology glitz" (translation: Dave The Slave is in Haiti and Anne tried to make a change…) some people weren't able to click on the link but wanted to come to the class. SO, if you haven't registered but would still like to come to one or all of the classes, you can still register until  Wednesday, September 7. Click here to see more info and to RSVP.
